BOSTON, Nov. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- At the 2018 REALTORS® Conference & Expo here today, DocuSign announced a progressive new 'Go Digital' program, which provides state and local REALTOR® associations with a means to help agents simplify and accelerate their business by making transactions digital. This new no-cost program is available now through the National Association of REALTORS®' REALTOR Benefits® Program.
The Go Digital program is focused on helping REALTORS® who are either new to the industry or new to using technologies like electronic signature. By signing up, associations can offer their members a fully featured version of DocuSign that allows them to close their first few deals free of charge. The program also provides unique tools and training resources tailored to each association. And following the program, members benefit from reduced usage costs on an ongoing basis.
"We have been working actively with the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) over the past year on the Go Digital program, and we are excited to build on our efforts to help agents around the country move towards fully digital real estate transactions," said Georg Gerstenfeld, general manager and vice president of Global Real Estate Solutions at DocuSign.
"Go Digital includes access to the DocuSign service, the sending of 20 documents for free, and a series of training and onboarding resources that streamline the integration of DocuSign into the real estate process. We believe that this—combined with our overall commitment to constant innovation and improvement—will help further reduce the barrier to entry for digital transformation in real estate further."
Today's news builds on DocuSign's previous announcements with NAR around expanding the adoption of technology in real estate to help create a fully-digital transaction from 'lead to close'. It is also aligned closely to NAR's goals for the year ahead—which includes rapidly accelerating digital transformation in the real estate industry.
"DocuSign has helped REALTORS® spend more time with their clients, working on making their real estate dreams a reality—rather than chasing paper or following lengthy and complex processes," said Mark Birschbach, NAR's SVP of Strategic Business Innovation & Technology. "We expect DocuSign's Go Digital program to extend those benefits to even more REALTORS®—and to make it easier for them to take their real estate transactions digital."
